  1. Letters from WWII

    by , 07-09-2012 at 04:50 AM
    After my mom passed away three years ago, I found letters that my dad sent her when he was in WWII. I would like to do/make something special with them. Since my mom loved to sew, and I have sewn for many years (but am new to quilting) I would love any suggestions. I thought of transferring some of the letters onto fabric paper, but would the wording come out backwards? Don't necessarily want to make a big quilt. Any ideas? My creative mind is drawing a blank. Thanks!

Not pleased with the uneven"rays" of E5 but will accept it as it lines up with my pattern. *sigh*

  3. Mixing flannel and quilting fabric together

    by , 07-08-2012 at 03:36 PM
    I just joined this board, and already received a good tip from this blog. Thank you I want to make a baby quilt and have both flannel and regular quilting fabric and wondered if they can be used together in one quilt. I didn't know that flannel shrinks 6% and cotton 3%. Great advice to wash the fabrics first. Can't wait to start the quilt. Thanks!!

  6. Directions for Machine Making Cathedral Window

    by , 07-06-2012 at 04:09 AM
    Help, does anyone remember a well done tute that showed how to make cathedral windows that involved cutting and pressing the backgrounds and then sewing on the pressed lines to connect the individual blocks? I would like to try the technique but should have made certain I could find the information when I needed it. I am pretty certain it orginated on the Quilting Board site. Thanks for your help.

    This is a quilt I have just finnished for my neice for her 40th Birthday, I think it is called "French Braid" or "Friendship Braid". I used just three fabrics, my neice is a policewoman, she works in the "Torres Strait Islands" off the far north coast of Australia, a very beautifull part of the world, the color of the quilt is the color of the ocean around these islands.
